at the president has done with the economy, it is very far reaching, just across the country women have access to capital to start small business, let's not forget his very, very first bill that he signed in to law was lily ledbetter fair pay act. it's a tremendous accomplishment. i think that shows his devotion and his commitment to women. >> first thing you have to ask is, what are women concerned about today, it's jobs, job security, opportunities for themselves and for their loved ones and in particular for their kidss there a brighter future. this is mitt romney's message to women to all americans. is that he is going to put in to place economic policies that will create growth which will create the jobs, be the energy to small businesses start growing again. >> we asked the experts whether reproductive rights is a decisive issue for women voters this year. >> it is for the barack obama campaign. they think that's the way they're going to keep their women. suggest that women would vote about who's going to pay for their contraception, that is more of an issue than are my loved ones workin
that will never change, prudential. >> wherever our trains go, the economy goes to life. norfolk southern, one line, infinite possibilities. >> additional corporate funding is provided by boeing. additional funding is provided by the an nenberg foundation, the corporation for public broadcasting and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> once again, live from washington, moderator gwen ifill. gwen: good evening. two men faced off for what each said would be his final campaign competing for the hearts and the minds of an economically stressed electorate. president obama won the much discussed battleground states. he won the electoral vote. he won the popular vote of -- and he won an america that revealed itself to be more divided than ever. today the president walked into the east room saying elections have consequences. >> what the american people are looking for is corporation. they're looking for consensus. they're looking for common sense. most of all, they want action. i intend to deliver for them in my second term i expect to find willing partners in bot
majority of them said that taxing the wealthy was a majority of that. there are other issues on the economy. 70% to 20% said that they trusted the economy. that should not be their goal. their goal should be to hit the 40% level that w. was able to do. that will make them competitive. and they need to also created goal for blacks. they cannot conceive 97% of the black vote. start with 12%, 17%, something. they need to make inroads. is unrealistic to say let's go for hispanics. if they can get to the 38% range, they can be competitive. in the same way, we're talking about the democratic problem with whites. >> in 2013, there is a big deal. comprehensive immigration reform was taken off the table. how far does this get you with this next emerging electorate? what else does the party have to do to get back to the kind of numbers that bush saw? >> is a step in the right direction, but it is far from the whole thing. it is basically ronald reagan mindset that says we welcome anyone who shares our values and our desire for lower taxes. bill back and listen to some of ronald reagan's rhetoric. --
with the economy. and make sure we do not go back into a recession. but they do want to stick to their guns. they feel like they are really won the election and not to cave in to the republicans on the upper income tax rate. host: chicago, ill., let us go matt, hi. caller: my comment is this, in order for us to solve this problem, both sides are going to have to experience a pretty significant amount of political pain. from my side, i am a lot of the center, i would like to see texas go up on the wealthy. but at the same time, being from chicago i remember when the simpson balls report came out, and congresswoman should kautsky, she said this is horrible there's no way i will vote for this. and i did not think that was right either. clearly, we are going to have to do something about medicare. i am not in favor of the ryan plan. my overall point is, and unfortunately we have not seen this in the past few years, steve is coming more from the right than from my side, but the overall bank is that both sides are born to half to be willing to take on a significant amount of pain. i hope the will
their ideas as well. in a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that is the focus of the plan that i talked about during the campaign. [applause] it is a plan to reward small businesses and manufacturers to create jobs here, not overseas, a plan to give people the chance to get the education and training that businesses are looking for right now. it is a plan to make sure this country is a global leader in research and technology and clean energy, which will attract new companies and high- wage jobs for america. it is a plan put americans back to work, including veterans, rebuilding our infrastructure, and it is a plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. our work is made that much more urgent because at the end of this year we face a series of deadlines that require us to make major decisions about how to pay our deficit down, decisions that will have a huge impact on economies and the middle class, both now and in the future. last year i worked with democrats and republicans to cut $1 trillion in sp
important issue was. the economy was way up on top, almost 3/5ths of people said the economy was the number-one issue. the percentage who said that foreign policy was the most important issue was down in the single digits. that is not the driver. foreign policy is usually not the biggest driver. it is worth noting that those voters who said that foreign policy was the most important issue, president obama won that group. host: that made for about 5%. the economy, 59% put that as the most important issue. federal budget deficit, 15%. talk about how the health care law played into voters' attitudes? 18% said it was the most important issue. guest: that is an important thing. almost one in five voters said that health care was the most important issue. the president won roughly three- quarters of that vote. throughout the republican primaries, the issue of obamacare was a huge rallying cry. in 2010, the republicans won some big victories because of anger on the part of conservative voters about the president's health-care law. by the time you get to this election, you see this turnaround were
of the fundamental question of the internet economy. >> right, it certainly is and again, no one, even in the children, even in the copa context where we proposed before you collect information online from children you have to get parental consent, we don't think, i mean that doesn't stop advertisements for children. it only stops particularly types of information and advertising it back and monetizing that information and soling it to third parties and using it to advertise to children. all it doesn't say you can't collect certain types of information. that is our proposal. we are taking comments. we haven't made up our mind precisely where we're going to go. >> let's sort of talk broadly about a concept of unfairness. so the ftc has a mandate of enforcing deceptive and unfair practices right? >> right. >> traditionally you erred on the side of deceptive. >> well, you know, if you make a commitment to anyone in this room we will in the privacy content we will protect your data and you don't honor that commitment that is deceptive practice. that is an easy thing to understand conceptua
that will make a difference in the future economy of this country. we are in a mess. he is in a position like a lot of previous presidents. he's got to be thinking, am i going to leave a disastrous legacy in the hands of our grandchildren? or am i going to step up and lead? i used to get criticized because i was a deal maker. i talked to people like joe lieberman, we would find a way to get things done. you have to give a little to get a little. doesn't wind up getting you in trouble? oh, yes. but after all, that is what this is all about. the president has said himself, and i quoted him in an article that may run in the "washington post" tomorrow, he says america deserves better. it begins with him. mcconnell has to be engaged. harry reid has to be engaged. we are at a profit this year. maybe it is the fiscal cliff. but we have to act on a lot of really serious things and we had some of it now. we have to do a lot of it next year. if they do the right thing, that our country will benefit the legacy will be secure. so i want to open this up. a lot of people in this room are engaged in this ef
. what's choking our economy and what's choking the economy of greece, and this is why i figured to it the way that i did, even though it was a figure of speech, entitlements are choking us and we've got to make the real reforms to make sure that we do it right. we protect these programs and thirdly, speaker boehner said it very well, i thought he showed great leadership that revenues need to be on the table. again, though, we need to do it in the right way. bowles/simpson said reduce the reductions where you can, lower tax rates by doing that. and i think, at the end of the day, what's going to happen, george, we got to get this economy going again. we have had an outside group ernest and young look at raising of taxes on the highest income earners. what a they concluded was, we would immediately lose 700,000 jobs in america. is that the kind of economy that this president wants to start out with in his second term? i don't think so. president obama said two years ago, now is not the time with a sluggish economy to raise taxes. we need to consider the fact that folks who started
lines for these tax cuts that would cause damage to the economy if they're not dealt with. extending those tax cuts for 98% of the american people would deal with more than half in dollar terms of the impact caused by the fiscal cliff. there are other challenges we need to address including the sequester but congress ought to, the house ought to pass those tax cuts right away because it would send a tremendous positive signal to the american people that in the wake of this election, we can at the very least, come together and convert into law a bill that everyone agrees should become law, republicans and democrats alike, the president included. and we will then continue to work on those issues where we have broader disagreement. and that's where the president has invited leaders of congress to the white house next week. that's why he will be meeting with business leaders and labor leaders and others to get their ideas about how to move forward. he does have his own very specific plan that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion, that does it in a balanced bay and we can invest in research
a stark contrast to the president who wants the federal government to drive the economy. the campaign unfolded slowly as most persons did not know romney. and with all the high tech gizmos these days, it's difficult to get the attention of the folks. so i knew very early that the polling was insignificant and the debates would be the real test. as i said, these polls are interesting but they are not vital because of the debates, the three debates i think really going to the tale. >> i told you earlier this year when you said debates are going to be all important. i said the history shows they are not. >> bill: i'm so happy that you brought that up. can i just -- can i paraphrase barack obama? in the last debate? can i do that? >> of course. >> bill: can you say that a bit louder, brit? that's why i like hume, is he an honest man. as we all know the first debate was a major victory for governor romney. instantly made him competitive. but he did not exactly seize the day. his campaign played it conservative managing romney's appearances tightly scripting his media response. then in the
things resolved, get the economy back on track. but, i think it's undeniable based on the results in the house, in the senate as well as the presidency that people are supporting the idea of a more progressive version of the government designed to stand-up for the middle class and that we are all in this together and people aren't on their own and shouldn't be on their own. i'm hopeful the republicans in the house of representatives will come to the conclusion they can't continue to stand by a hard line position of no compromise. the one thing i think is clear is the american people want government to work and that's going to require compromise. >> the american people want government to work. wanting it doesn't make it so. ed, you are an outspoken supporter to mitt romney and a donor to a super pac. >> yes. >> i can understand how you feel about the presidential election because the person you were backing didn't win. when you look at the senate and congress and how congress is going to work with the president, how you interpret or understand the election results? >> one thing is
't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier
the only democratic candidate running on a record of a weak economy and debt crisis that we face and still win. yet, he did. they did very many things that were right. you can point to a couple of things with mitt romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and over again. the democratic voters were dispirited and they were not feeling enthusiastic about the campaign. it was the conservatives and republicans fired up and getting ready to go. the notion was, he would h
that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do not think hispanics always want to be associated with immigration. it is difficult to separate the immigration conversation from them because it is so integral to their lives. 60% of hispanic voters know somebody personally that is undocumented and they could be dating that person or it could be there brother or father. i have talked to people about this. hispanic advocates tell me that it is hard to separate immigration from them. that could change if there is a revolution. they are the driving force behind it. host: a couple of facts from the pew center. people ages 98-29, the youth -- people ages 18-29 make up about a third of all eligible hispanic voters. guest: this is an issue that is closer to their hearts. host: the projected population growth among the latino community. made up of about 17% of the population in 2011. i
of our economy. there will be many who will say with the election over, we should confront the first challenges by electing the top two tax rates expire and pushing it off to somewhere else. they have lessing based in the same temporary policies that have put this into this fix. now they are saying, let's have more of the same. let's to drive our economy of the fiscal cliff and we will call it a day. that might get us out of town but it will not get us out of the problem and it will hurt our economy. we cannot keep going on like that, we cannot set the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. the american people this week did give us a mandate to simply do the simple thing -- they elected us to lead. they gave us a mandate to work together to do the best for our country. we know what the best thing is, an agreement that sends the signal to our economy and to the world that after years of hunting on the fiscal challenges we face, -- punting the fiscal challenges we face, 2013 is going to be different. if we want to lift the cloud of debt hanging over our country. we will not solve t
were the issues americans cared about. economy and then a big storm on the east coast. they covered it and they covered it pretty well. >> jon: the exit polls thought that voters mitt romney was better equipped to handle the economy than barack obama. >> then it says something about the attitude toward the two men and they made a choice or the two parties and they made a choice. if you just go by viewers, fox mrs. msnbc, romney should have won three to one. >> jon: exit polls, some suggest reflected sort of the media theme that barack obama is a kiachbd of the little guy and middle-class and mitt romney is a rich guy that only cares about rich guys? >> i think it's clear that obama is the person who is looking to have middle-class tax cuts and mitt romney was to give tax cuts to rich people. what i would say, the reason i don't think the media played as big of a role in this. the reason barack obama won is because he ran a superior campaign. it was very targeted in these battleground states. i would be more interested in seeing exit polls from the battleground states which unfortuna
. the same rate we had when our economy created nearly 23 million new jobs, the biggest surplus in history, and a whole lot of millionaires to boot. >> that was before the election. that was in the -- let's see, think some convention? very clear where president obama was and very clear where the american people voted. americans want progressive action, including higher taxes on the wealthiest americans. this is a pivotal moment for the democrats. the republicans are already trying to make it hard. president obama reached out right after the election victory. he was told that they were already asleep. today speaker boehner told abc news tax increases are still off the table. >> putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming or tax code. i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to security or entitlement programs. >> revenue through reforming or tax code? this is the same stuff voters just rejected. this was a bright spot in boehner's interview. he was asked if republicans will still pursue full repeat. >> i think the election
have to solve the problem or our economy will be in the tank in the not too distant future. connell: you said they still have a couple years, maybe two years, before the market really get that is, the bond market, and the interest rates start to shoot up. before we see that, will we see the necessary action was not if you still have low rates, it is not necessarily force the low hand. >> that is right. i think if we get to the point where the market starts to take action to discipline our habit, it is too late for policymakers. that is why we have to do this soon. we cannot wait until the market is tired of this and start imposing higher interest rates which will lead to the devaluing of the dollar and lower standards of living. we will probably make it okay, but do we want to leave it for the people who follow us? i do not think so. connell: the second part i wanted to ask you about was revenue and the republican mindset on this. looking at comments the last few days, it seems as if people are more inclined to say, whatever you call it, rates were closing the loopholes, we will hav
of large spending cuts and tax increases. >> reporter: the economy could go off that cliff. so what exactly is the fiscal cliff? it is a nightmare combination of tax hikes and spending cuts that congress and the president agreed to. to force themselves into a compromise. but so far, they have not agreed on anything. so barring a last-minute fix at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve, the bush tax cuts expire. the alternative minimum tax kicks in. more than half of all married couples with two children would owe an additional $4,000 in taxes per year, for those with three children or more, that jumps to $4700. on top of that, the payroll tax cut would expire. so add on a 2% tax increase for most workers, with automatic spending cuts in a thousand government programs, including defense, medicare, extended unemployment benefits. everything but veteran's benefits and social security, and federal pensions congress says that action would act as a break on the economy, throwing it back into recession and could cause a market crash. >> people watching very closely is can the administration act
